Should I (And how do I) Overclock my AMD FX 6300?

I just completed my first custom build recently and was considering overclocking my system but I am not sure it is worth it or viable.

My system is as follows:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

CPU: AMD FX-6300

Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

RAM: 8 GB Ballstix


GPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 630

It's not much, but it was affordable and runs what i need it to.

If someone could give me instructions on HOW to overclock i would appreciate it, and if my build isn't viable then that's fine, just let me know.

  1. With the gt630 you probably wont gain a great deal by o/c. If you want to check out settings others have used, try this thread.

    Just take small steps, run monitoring software to keep an eye on temps, and do stability testing.

  2. What PSU are you running?
